Rave reviews

Picture this: sitting around a firepit in a spacious garden with your friends, roasting marshmallows after a day spent on the beach. Afterwards you head into the heated garage for a game of table tennis or darts before heading into the spacious house to kick back and relax.

Or how about this: a romantic cottage break in a picturesque village. You and your other half stroll around Sweetheart Abbey and the surrounding fields before stopping by a country pub for a drink.

Either of those options sound lovely? You should check out this deal from Galloway Escapes. It offers a stay at either the Craigbittern House or Rosewall Cottage, the former which sleeps up to thirteen and the latter which is ideal for couples.

So whether you’re looking for a group getaway with friends or a romantic break, this deal has an option that will suit.

Craigbittern House and Cottage

For group holidays, celebrations and reunions, Craigbittern House is the accommodation to go for. The main Baronial style house and adjacent cottage sleeps 13 people combined. The main house boasts five bedrooms (two ensuite), a bathroom, shower room, toilet, entrance hallway, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, study, utility room and gaming room.

The large enclosed gardens of the house has a fire pit, perfect for roasting marshmallows on warm Spring nights, and a converted heated garage with a football table, darts, table tennis and fridge.

The house’s adjacent cottage is perfect for those who want to join the group but keep to a different schedule, or perhaps would like some space of their own. It has a lounge, shower room, toilet bedroom, small kitchen, breakfast dining area and twin room.

The large, beautiful grounds of Craigbittern House are spacious enough to simply stay in for a few days but there’s plenty in the surrounding areas for those who would like to explore. The beautiful Sandyhill Beach is just a short walk away, as is Barend Pub. The village of Colvend is less than two miles away and a seafood van passes through the village every Thursday. Colvend Golf Course is located in Sandyhills and free golf can be enjoyed by up to four guests staying at the accommodation. The scenic village of Kippford is an eight minute drive away and hosts two pubs, two tea rooms and a gift shop.

Rosewall Cottage

Located in the picture postcard village of New Abbey, Rosewall Cottage, which sleeps two, is for those looking for a romantic break. The adorable cottage has a double bedroom, bathroom with bath and shower, living room, dining kitchen and small private garden.

On the edge of the village is the intriguing Sweetheart Abbey which dates back to 1273. A popular local walk is up Criffel, the highest hill for miles around, which offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

The surrounding area of the two properties offer gorgeous coastal walks, excellent bird watching opportunities, and cycling along the quiet country roads.

Rave reviews

The Galloway Escapes properties have rave reviews on Facebook, with an average rating of five stars from 33 reviews. Here’s a review of Craigbittern House:

“We are just driving away from the most glorious weekend at Craigbittern House and had to write this review immediately. Stayed with friends and our young families and the house couldn’t have been more perfect. So much space and beautiful decor throughout. So cosy and warm on cold winter nights which was a welcome treat. The beach is breathtakingly beautiful and just across the road!!!No need for us to go anywhere as we were thoroughly entertained in and around the house the whole time. Sad to leave but will definitely be back again in the future. Can’t recommend highly enough.”

And Rosewall Cottage:

“We spent the weekend with friends who live nearby and it was just what we needed Dumfries has a lot more to offer than we realised… beautiful beaches near buy, shopping, great walks and much much more!! There is no doubt on this earth that next year we will return. I travel the country for work and only tend to write bad reviews about places but this place truly justified a great review. If anyone is planning on staying here you will not be disappointed. It was THE perfect break and just what we needed. If your stressed with work and feel like a few days or a week away this is the place to be!!”
